The soul must just leave itself in 114 3, 6 | the very effort which the soul makes in order to cease 115 3, 6 | manner, and illumines the soul's knowledge to so much higher 116 3, 7 | As I understand it, the soul whom the Lord has been pleased 117 3, 9 | dilation or enlargement of the soul takes place, as if the water 118 3, 9 | many more wonders in the soul, thus fitting and gradually 119 3, 9 | interior dilation cause the soul to be less constrained in 120 3, 9 | twice God has granted a soul this favour; it must continue 121 3, 10 | offending God. For as yet the soul is not even weaned but is 122 3, 10 | sets much more store by one soul in this state than by a 123 3, 13 | there will be none in the soul, which, when it finds itself 124 3, 13 | little while. Although the soul may become absorbed again, 125 1 | explain how in prayer the soul is united with God. Describes 126 1, 3 | say "dream", because the soul seems to be, as it were, 127 1, 3 | the condition lasts, the soul is without consciousness 128 1, 3 | death, a snatching of the soul from all the activities 129 1, 3 | come closer to God, the soul appears to have withdrawn 130 1, 3(112) | for, although it [the soul] is in Him, according to 131 1, 4 | have just described the soul is doubtful as to what has 132 1, 4 | with the essence of the soul114 that he will not dare 133 1, 4(113) | Of the soul alone", inserts Gracián, 134 1, 4 | gains which come to the soul with God working in it and 135 1, 5 | and satisfaction for the soul or the same peace and joy. 136 1, 8 | decisive one: here is this soul which God has made, as it 137 1, 8 | wisdom. For as long as such a soul is in this state, it can 138 1, 8 | always short and seems to the soul even shorter than it really 139 1, 8 | in the interior of that soul in such a way that, when 140 1, 8 | This certainty of the soul is very material. ~ 141 1, 9 | will say to me: How did the soul see it and understand it 142 1, 9 | certainty which remains in the soul, which can be put there 143 1, 9 | is not union of the whole soul with God but only union 144 1, 9 | favour which God grants the soul. In all these matters we 145 1, 10 | into the centre127 of our soul, and must enter there Himself; 146 1, 10 | come into the centre of the soul without using a door, as 147 1, 10 | Majesty's will that the soul should have fruition of 148 2 | which it produces in the soul. Should be studied with 149 2, 1 | thing further; but when the soul to which God grants these 150 2, 1 | and I shall describe that soul's state. In order the better 151 2, 4 | The silkworm is like the soul which takes life when, through 152 2, 4 | these are the remedies for a soul dead in negligences and 153 2, 4 | plunged into temptation. The soul begins to live and nourishes 154 2, 8 | greatness of God, that a soul should come out like this 155 2, 8 | tell you truly, the very soul does not know itself. For 156 2, 8 | just the same here. The soul cannot think how it can 157 2, 8 | if after God comes to a soul here on earth it strives 158 2, 9 | Lord helps and transforms a soul, so that it seems no longer 159 2, 10 | trials begin afresh for this soul! Who would think such a 160 2, 10 | who gives peace to the soul in order later to wage a 161 2, 11 | despite all it has gained, the soul is not wholly resigned to 162 2, 12 | only a few days -- this soul was thinking of nothing 163 2, 12 | feel this as keenly as the soul does now. God help me! If 164 2, 12 | without any effort on the soul's part, and sometimes against 165 2, 13 | the position here. That soul has now delivered itself 166 2, 13 | this favour save to the soul which He takes for His very 167 2, 13 | without understanding how, the soul shall go thence sealed with 168 2, 13 | His seal. In reality, the soul in that state does no more 169 2, 14 | what our God does to the soul in this state so that it 170 2, 15 | And, I reflected, if a soul which has so very little 171 3 | with the help of God, the soul can attain, and the important 172 3, 1 | in vain, and that if the soul that receives it does not 173 3, 1 | will do so. For, as the soul possesses these aforementioned 174 3, 4 | is this union! Happy the soul that has attained to it, 175 3, 4 | Church of God. For this soul sees clearly that He knows 176 3, 5 | passion which disturbs the soul and lasts for a long time. 177 3, 5 | penetrate to the depth of the soul but only reach these senses 178 3, 10 | hope of saving just one soul. If our later actions are 179 4, 2 | but the Lord can make the soul very deeply conscious of 180 4, 3 | already drawn up and the soul has been clearly given to 181 4, 3 | case, is pleased with the soul, so He grants her this mercy, 182 4, 3 | and in a secret way the soul sees Who this Spouse is 183 4, 3 | people say) with Him; and the soul becomes so fired with love 184 4, 4 | for even in this state the soul is not strong enough to 185 4, 4 | Afterwards, when he sees that the soul is completely surrendered 186 4, 4 | for he is afraid of such a soul as that, and he knows by 187 4, 4 | very much the loser and the soul will achieve a corresponding 188 4, 5 | said, if he wins a single soul in this way he will win 189 4, 5 | through the agency of a single soul, the thought of the thousands 190 4, 6 | The first is this: If the soul is so completely at one 191 4, 6 | into such peril that your soul may be lost, when you are 192 4, 7 | reply would be that, if this soul invariably followed the 193 4, 7 | observe the behaviour of the soul which He wishes to set up 194 4, 8 | that when God brings a soul to such a point He lets 195 4, 9 | it is unthinkable that a soul which has arrived so far 196 4, 9 | would be a very bad sign. A soul which has once set out to 197 1 | Lord begins to grant the soul greater favours, it has 198 1, 1 | sixth Mansions, in which the soul has been wounded with love 199 1, 2 | The soul is now completely determined 200 1, 2 | blessings should be won by the soul at some cost to itself. 201 1, 2 | daughters, that, if the soul is to bear its trials, it 202 1, 2 | these trials, which the soul will suffer, both within 203 1, 2 | more to be feared, and the soul will plunge deep into suffering 204 1, 2 | reason for this is that the soul is almost continuously near 205 1, 3 | occurred to me that some soul finding itself in this state 206 1, 4 | already mentioned. For the soul sees quite clearly that 207 1, 4 | God is granting it, the soul thinks that His Majesty 208 1, 4 | The fourth is that, as the soul now prizes the honour and 209 1, 5 | always felt, except when a soul takes no notice of such 210 1, 5 | already mentioned. Once the soul has learned to care little 211 1, 5 | is absolutely true. The soul is fortified rather than 212 1, 5 | bring, and it seems to the soul that its persecutors are 213 1, 6 | I mean -- however many a soul may suffer: I repeat that 214 1, 6 | referring. For they affect the soul both outwardly and inwardly, 215 1, 8 | any imperfection in the soul that is undergoing these 216 1, 8 | carefully. But, when the poor soul, harassed by the same fear, 217 1, 8 | passes quickly, and the soul is ever mindful of its sins, 218 1, 8 | confessor reassures the soul, it becomes calm, though 219 1, 8 | aridity, during which the soul feels as if it has never 220 1, 9 | gives him leave to test her soul, and even to make her think 221 1, 9 | things which assault her soul with an interior oppression 222 1, 10 | that he may torture her soul the more. A certain confessor, 223 1, 11 | of this burden from the soul, so that it seems as if 224 1, 11 | gained the victory, the soul keeps praising Our Lord, 225 1, 12 | understand this, for the soul's experience of enduring 226 1, 12 | buried so deeply that the soul seems not to feel the smallest 227 1, 13 | How sad it is to see a soul thus forsaken, and how little, 228 1, 14 | that, but for enabling the soul to endure it -- is to occupy 229 1, 15 | faculties or to disturb the soul, in the way already described. 230 1, 16 | favours of the Lord and the soul understands them to be so, 231 1, 16 | distress comes just before the soul's entrance into the seventh 232 2 | which Our Lord awakens the soul; there appears to be nothing 233 2, 1 | means so delicate that the soul itself does not understand 234 2, 2 | no sound is heard,157 the soul is very well aware that 235 2, 2 | much more satisfying to a soul than is the delectable absorption, 236 2, 3 | clear that He is with the soul and seems to be giving it 237 2, 3 | seems to be calling the soul in a way which involves 238 2, 4 | effect of this upon the soul that it becomes consumed 239 2, 4 | will fly out and touch the soul, in such a way that it will 240 2, 4 | is very delectable, the soul continues to feel that pain 241 2, 4 | completely enkindles the soul; for, just as the soul is 242 2, 4 | the soul; for, just as the soul is about to become enkindled, 243 2, 4 | spark dies, and leaves the soul yearning once again to suffer 244 2, 6 | never be bestowed upon the soul by the devil: he can give 245 2, 6 | tranquillity and joy in the soul; for all his powers are 246 2, 6 | advantages accrue to the soul, which, as a general rule, 247 2, 7 | when it is not) nor can the soul doubt that it is there; 248 2, 7 | remains -- I mean, if the soul doubts whether or no it 249 2, 7 | from the interior of the soul. I may conceivably be mistaken; 250 2, 8 | methods of awakening the soul. Quite unexpectedly, when 251 2, 8 | the Spouse is there. The soul is moved by a delectable 252 2, 8 | causes pain, nor are the soul's desires to enjoy God in 253 2, 8 | most usually felt by the soul. For several of the reasons 254 3 | do so, God speaks to the soul. Gives instructions as to 255 3, 1 | in which God awakens the soul, and which, although in 256 3, 1 | it. This awakening of the soul is effected by means of 257 3, 1 | innermost depths of the soul; others from its higher 258 3, 1 | so completely outside the soul that they can be heard with 259 3, 3 | tend to increase. Yet the soul should not be allowed to 260 3, 5 | explain myself further. A soul is experiencing all the 261 3, 5 | might strive to do so. Or a soul is distressed because its 262 3, 6 | tranquillity dwells in the soul, which becomes peacefully 263 3, 6 | wilt Thou not leave in the soul that is bound to Thee, as 264 3, 7 | about it, yet within the soul itself there is a certainty 265 3, 7 | overcome. It may seem to the soul that everything is moving 266 3, 7 | the less, as I say, the soul is distressed when it sees 267 3, 7 | these doubts arise, and the soul wonders if the whole thing 268 3, 7 | least he will weaken the soul's faith, for it is most 269 3, 8 | happenings which may persuade the soul that they cannot come true, 270 3, 8 | remain alive, even if the soul wished it to die. And in 271 3, 8 | word is fulfilled, and the soul is so happy and glad that 272 3, 9 | know why it is, but the soul is so anxious for these 273 3, 12 | which the Lord speaks to the soul, which for my own part I 274 3, 12 | down in the depths of the soul does this contact take place, 275 3, 12 | seem to be heard with the soul's own faculty of hearing, 276 3, 12 | the very way in which the soul understands them, together 277 3, 14 | reason is that often the soul has not been thinking of 278 3, 14 | have invented them, and the soul cannot be deceived about 279 3, 15 | in genuine locutions the soul seems to be hearing something, 280 3, 15 | composing bit by bit what the soul wishes to hear. ~ 281 3, 17 | described, or to leave in the soul this peace or light, but 282 3, 17 | little or no harm if the soul is humble and does what 283 3, 18 | to it from the Lord, the soul should consider carefully 284 3, 18 | the greater the favour the soul receives, the less by far 285 3, 18 | favours that come to the soul in prayer, it need not be 286 3, 19 | the interior part of the soul in such a way that the soul 287 3, 19 | soul in such a way that the soul becomes fully aware that 288 4 | occasions when God suspends the soul in prayer by means of rapture, 289 4, 2 | raptures, which carry the soul out of its senses; for if, 290 4, 2 | possession of its senses, the soul saw that it was so near 291 4, 3 | of rapture is this. The soul, though not actually engaged 292 4, 3 | compassion at having seen the soul suffering so long through 293 4, 3 | that the sins of such a soul are pardoned, assuming that 294 4, 3 | it and He, and even the soul itself does not understand 295 4, 4 | understand it, is that the soul has never before been so 296 4, 4 | so as well, how can the soul be said to understand this 297 4, 5 | When the soul is in this state of suspension 298 4, 6 | will say to me, "if the soul is not going to remember 299 4, 6 | in the very depths of the soul and they are never forgotten. " 300 4, 6 | you will say next, "if the soul retains no image of them 301 4, 6 | remains so firmly in the soul that even had it not faith 302 4, 6 | believe Him to be God, the soul would adore Him as such 303 4, 7 | revealed secret things to his soul in such a way as to make 304 4, 8 | just like that here. The soul becomes one with God. It 305 4, 8 | And although while the soul is in ecstasy the Lord will 306 4, 9 | own belief is that, if the soul to whom God has given these 307 4, 9 | God is taking her entire soul to Himself, and that, as 308 4, 13 | means to enrapture this soul, it loses its power of breathing, 309 4, 13 | seems no longer to have a soul -- sometimes it even seems 310 4, 13 | give fuller life to the soul. Complete ecstasy, therefore, 311 4, 14 | several days -- that the soul seems incapable of grasping 312 4, 15 | Oh, what confusion the soul feels when it comes to itself 313 4, 15 | as great as this? Such a soul would gladly have a thousand 314 4, 16 | some extent they lessen the soul's absorption in what it 315 4, 16 | are no longer within the soul's own power of control, 316 4, 16 | realize that such a person's soul is now His and that no one 317 4, 16 | Majesty's honour. But her soul they may not attack, for 318 5 | example of how God exalts the soul through flights of the spirit 319 5, 1 | same, is felt within the soul175 in a very different way. 320 5, 1 | different way. Sometimes the soul becomes conscious of such 321 5, 1 | Our Lord may do with the soul as He wills. Do you suppose 322 5, 1 | these transports of the soul? We have even read in some 323 5, 1 | transported as well as the soul, without knowing whither 324 5, 1 | sudden motion begins the soul has no certainty that it 325 5, 2 | seems to be to show the soul that, since it has so often 326 5, 3 | this little ship -- our soul -- is lifted up on high. 327 5, 3 | the interior part of the soul to stop where it likes, 328 5, 5 | is another reason why the soul needs great courage, for 329 5, 6 | offer to His Father.178 That soul, as I have understood from 330 5, 6 | things that happen to a soul which the Lord has brought 331 5, 6 | to my thinking, if the soul is humble, more courage 332 5, 7 | of such a kind that the soul really seems to have left 333 5, 7 | even himself be sure if the soul is in the body or no. He 334 5, 7 | seen with the eyes of the soul very much more clearly than 335 5, 8 | sees with the eyes of the soul, in intellectual vision, 336 5, 8 | or with the eyes of the soul, he is shown the things 337 5, 8 | extremely difficult. If the soul is in the body or not while 338 5, 8 | not myself swear that the soul is in the body, nor that 339 5, 8 | the body is bereft of the soul. ~ 340 5, 9 | must be possible for the soul and the spirit, which are 341 5, 9 | there begins within the soul a flight (I know no other 342 5, 9 | be due to fancy. When the soul, as far as it can understand, 343 5, 9 | to have been to show the soul something of the country 344 5, 9 | help which it gives the soul is so great that only the 345 5, 10 | produce such results in the soul and leave it with such peace 346 5, 10 | realizing how a thing like the soul, so base by comparison with 347 5, 11 | it is impossible for the soul to forget them until it 348 5, 11 | Spouse Who gives them to the soul has power also to give it 349 5, 12 | Returning now to the soul's need of courage, I ask 350 5, 12 | thing after all? For the soul really feels that it is 351 5, 12 | say that this fear of the soul's is well rewarded; so too 352 6 | which the Lord grants to the soul so that He may use it to 353 6, 1 | such great favours, the soul is so anxious to have complete 354 6, 1 | of this fire causes the soul to take flight; and thus 355 6, 1 | public. Further, although the soul would fain be free from 356 6, 3 | alone, if for no other, the soul would like to flee from 357 6, 3 | doing this it could help one soul to praise God more; a woman 358 6, 4 | that on her account one soul might praise Thee a little 359 6, 5 | most trifling matters the soul feels cowardly, and is so 360 6, 6 | these great desires of the soul to see Our Lord: that they 361 6, 6 | believe he could ever fill the soul with the quietness and peace 362 6, 8 | when the fire within my soul is strong, however hard 363 6, 8 | body, it cannot (if the soul is humble, I mean) hurt 364 6, 8 | humble, I mean) hurt the soul. If it is not humble, it 365 6, 10 | sometimes bestows upon the soul a jubilation and a strange 366 6, 10 | happens. The joy of the soul is so exceedingly great 367 6, 10 | festivities because she sees her soul in a place which she cannot 368 6, 10 | joy in the depths of the soul's being, such peace and 369 6, 11 | is by this great joy, the soul cannot be expected to keep 370 6, 12 | the inmost depths of the soul. I should like you to praise 371 6, 13 | for a whole day, and the soul will then be like one who 372 6, 13 | that this joy makes the soul so forgetful of itself, 373 6, 13 | God. Let us join with this soul, my daughters all. Why should 374 7, 2 | different kinds, for the soul does not now think of the 375 7, 2 | He communicates to it the soul gains a much deeper knowledge 376 7, 2 | were running through the soul and from time to time bringing 377 7, 5 | However favoured by God a soul may be, I should not think 378 7, 7 | with the meaning which my soul always feels to be the true 379 7, 8 | once He is found, and the soul grows accustomed to seeking 380 7, 8 | so, especially before the soul has reached these last Mansions, 381 7, 9 | explain it further. The soul is desirous of employing 382 7, 9 | be a good thing for the soul to remain in that state 383 7, 9 | will perform them for this soul when He sees fit to do so, 384 7, 10 | where in a wonderful way the soul never ceases to walk with 385 7, 12 | nor is it possible that a soul which has received so much 386 7, 12 | which will enkindle the soul more and more in its love 387 7, 12 | by the understanding: the soul will understand them in 388 7, 12 | This, I think, is why the soul cannot reason properly about 389 7, 13 | great mistake. If while the soul is meditating the Lord should 390 7, 13 | procedure is no hindrance to the soul but a great help to it in 391 7, 16 | subject to another, until my soul, I think, got like a bird 392 8 | communicates Himself to the soul through intellectual vision.198 393 8, 1 | and see that the farther a soul progresses the closer becomes 394 8, 2 | may happen that, while the soul is not in the least expecting 395 8, 2 | body or with those of the soul. This (I do not know why) 396 8, 3 | good: were it his work, the soul would not have such peace 397 8, 4 | nothing happened in her soul of which I was ignorant 398 8, 4 | for the Presence Which the soul has at its side makes it 399 8, 4 | much more commonly, as the soul experiences a vivid and 400 8, 5 | are best seen in what the soul gains from it. It thanks 401 8, 5 | pleased to withdraw it, the soul is left in great loneliness; 402 8, 6 | Presence cannot be seen, the soul knows that it is that of 403 8, 6 | is a question which the soul cannot answer, nor can it 404 8, 6 | no words are spoken, the soul is able to feel that the 405 8, 7 | such visions cause in the soul may be observed by any one 406 8, 7 | possibly last so long or do the soul such a great deal of good, 407 8, 7 | fact, even if he would. The soul would soon become clouded 408 8, 7 | have all this power over a soul whose one aim is to please 409 8, 8 | continue to be, that, if the soul walks in the manner described 410 8, 8 | have little effect on your soul, either for good or for 411 8, 9 | life, she may think your soul is safe, she will be bound 412 8, 9 | misgivings that they prevent the soul from being content with 413 9 | communicates Himself to the soul through imaginary visions 414 9, 3 | greater consolations upon this soul, He grants it, in whatever 415 9, 4 | sometimes even speaks to the soul and shows it things both 416 9, 4 | realize that, although the soul sees this for a certain 417 9, 4 | cambric. Almost invariably the soul on which God bestows this 418 9, 5 | majesty that it fills the soul with a great terror. It 419 9, 5 | without being told, the soul knows Who it is, for He 420 9, 7 | which God grants to the soul, and we shall find it of 421 9, 7 | for this reason that the soul remains in suspension; the 422 9, 8 | When the soul is able to remain for a 423 9, 10 | is quite different. The soul is very far from expecting 424 9, 10 | everything grows calm, and the soul, completely instructed in 425 9, 10 | this fear, God allows the soul to begin to hesitate as 426 9, 10 | the devil can disturb the soul, but he cannot shake the 427 9, 10 | over the interior of the soul he wields less power. He 428 9, 11 | this for themselves, and a soul to whom God has granted 429 9, 11 | humility they leave in the soul and to what extent it is 430 9, 11 | for the account which the soul gives will at once show 431 9, 14 | have thought herself a lost soul unless she had done so. 432 9, 15 | The soul derives great profit from 433 9, 16 | before the Lord grants a soul these favours He always 434 9, 22 | many trials; and thus the soul does not think about receiving 435 9, 24 | kinds. If it were able, the soul would invent methods by 436 10 | which God grants to the soul in a different way from 437 10, 1 | communicates Himself to the soul by means of these apparitions. 438 10, 1 | Some of them come when the soul is afflicted; others, when 439 10, 1 | he is delighted to see a soul distressed and uneasy, because 440 10, 2 | it may happen that the soul will be at prayer, and in 441 10, 2 | although I say that the soul "sees" Him, it really sees 442 10, 2 | which is revealed to the soul how all things are seen 443 10, 2 | remains engraven upon the soul. It causes us the greatest 444 10, 8 | Our Lord grants the soul favours like these because 445 10, 8 | for the devil or for the soul's own imagination, and when 446 10, 8 | and when it knows this the soul experiences a great and 447 11 | enjoy God which He gives the soul and which are so great and 448 11, 1 | the Spouse has granted the soul been sufficient to satisfy 449 11, 1 | and that He can raise a soul to the highest point here 450 11, 2 | The soul, then, has these yearnings 451 11, 2 | it causes pain. While the soul is in this condition, and 452 11, 2 | or some remark which the soul hears about death's long 453 11, 2 | can be felt, but in the soul's most intimate depths. 454 11, 3 | alert to discover why this soul feels absent from God, and 455 11, 3 | body, but deep within the soul. It was in this way that 456 11, 3 | much more sensitive the soul is than the body, and it 457 11, 4 | as feeble as though the soul were about to render itself 458 11, 4 | heat of the body fails, the soul burns so fiercely within 459 11, 4 | In the present case, the soul feels nothing at all, and 460 11, 6 | deal, especially if the soul can be purified by suffering 461 11, 6 | nothing by comparison), the soul feels this affliction to 462 11, 6 | relieve it; none the less the soul suffers it very gladly, 463 11, 7 | are not resigned, as this soul is, nor have they this contentment 464 11, 7 | torment suffered by the soul is much more acute than 465 11, 7 | a grievous thing is the soul's suffering and how different 466 11, 8 | discussing when we left this soul in such affliction. It remains 467 11, 9 | than she can bear, that her soul seems to be on the very 468 11, 10 | wonderful effects and the soul at once loses its fear of 469 11, 10 | Having gained so much, the soul would be glad to suffer 470 11, 10 | escaping it when it comes. The soul has far more contempt for 471 11, 11 | it really seems as if the soul is swooning, and as if the 472 1 | some difference between the soul and the spirit although 473 1, 1 | strive not to despise a soul in which the Lord takes 474 1, 1 | Each of us possesses a soul, but we do not prize our 475 1, 1 | which God reveals to every soul that He brings into this 476 1, 3 | pleased to have pity upon this soul, which suffers and has suffered 477 1, 3 | an abiding-place in the soul, just as He has one in Heaven, 478 1, 3 | should not think of the soul as of something dark. It 479 1, 3 | we think that within our soul there is some kind of darkness. 480 1, 3 | kind of darkness. Of the soul that is not in grace, I 481 1, 3 | the first Mansion, this soul is not capable212 of receiving 482 1, 5 | be so, since within each soul there is a mansion for God. 483 1, 5 | is pleased to grant the soul the aforementioned favour 484 1, 5 | Prayer of Union, although the soul does not feel called to 485 1, 5 | great delight of which the soul is then conscious is the 486 1, 6 | scales from the eyes of the soul,216 so that it may see and 487 1, 6 | which is given to it, the soul realizes that most certainly 488 1, 6 | what we hold by faith the soul may be said here to grasp219 489 1, 6 | either of the body or of the soul,220 for it is no imaginary 490 1, 6 | communicate Themselves to the soul and speak to the soul and 491 1, 6 | the soul and speak to the soul and explain to it those 492 1, 6 | will come to dwell with the soul which loves Him and keeps 493 1, 7 | they are! Each day this soul wonders more, for she feels 494 1, 8 | companionship. Unless her soul fails God, He will never 495 1, 8 | it. For this belief the soul has good reason, though 496 1, 9 | occasions when God grants the soul this consolation; if it 497 1, 9 | would be impossible for the soul to think of anything else, 498 1, 9 | may not be so clear, the soul is always aware that it 499 1, 9 | companionship. We might compare the soul to a person who is with 500 1, 9 | mercy which He grants the soul in never going away from
